How to fix some mysterious problems.

I used Greenpois0n RC6.1 to jailbreak my 3GS(new boot room). But for some reason, after I follow the steps to put it into DFU mode the window says "jail breaking" when there isn't any text appearing on the phone's screen. Then, I'm stuck in DFU mode and have to restore. This has happened twice and I have followed all the DFU mode steps correctly, any one had this before and if so, have you found a way around this?

First of all make sure your device is really on DFU mode (Black screen + when plugged to iTune show "recovery mode"). then make sure you have working internet connection.

If all the above stuff is ok and the GP didn't work with you. Try to hold home button after entering the DFU mode while Greenpois0n doing the first stage of jailbreaking until the codes start to roll on your iPhone screen.

that's because you're using the old greenpois0n. download rc6.1 (newest) and restore your iPhone to 4.2.1 and jailbreak again.

Sounds like a dfu driver issue, see knightz4u's post here, it might help.
